REYNALDO I. Berroya, a retired police general who became administrator of the Light Rail Transport Authority (LRTA), has passed away. He was 74.
“It is with profound sadness and sorrow that we bid adieu to one of the most courageous and dedicated public servant and defender of the Republic, Gen. Reynaldo Berroya, administrator of the Light Rail Transport Authority,” Transportation Secretary Arthur P. Tugade said in a statement on Monday.
Mr. Berroya, who was elected as LRTA administrator in 2017, previously held positions in the Department of Transportation and Communications, Land Transportation Office, Civil Security Group, Anti-Drugs Task Force, and the Presidential Anti-Crime Commission, among others.
Mr. Tugade described him as having an “exceptional leadership.”
“As Administrator, he was one of those who was instrumental in lifting and revitalizing the image of the country’s transport system, particularly the railways sector,” he also said. — Arjay L. Balinbin
